This sounds incredibly useful!!! It’s so easy to lose track of comments and replies... I’m defintely going to check this out and let you know if I have any feedback. Cheers!

I'm pretty sure you will find it useful.
I test use it for days now, including as a team with our new "communication manager" for @steemitboard,
I wouldn't go to the old days I hadn't this tool.

Waiting for your feedback 🙄

Damn I just worked through about 70 comments and I had missed SO MANY and it was SO FAST. Also the 'Reply and Vote'. YOU CHANGED MY LIFE! This is awesome. It works perfectly.

The only very small thing I noticed was that while I was replying new comments came in (I saw on Gina ;-)) and they didn't automatically appear on the bottom of the list, I had to refresh the browser. But that is minor stuff - I'm really very very impressed and will definitely use this a lot! Thanks!

Thank you @soyrosa for such a positive feedback. Makes warm at heart 😊

Yes, this is something already in my todo-list and I will improve it later (maybe some kind of auto-refresh)
Posted with

You're welcome! :D Auto-refresh is not even necessary as long as there is a 'number' somewhere that says 'refresh for 3 new comments' or something like that :-)

PS: One other tiny thing I would love is to have the 'Posted with SteemReply' aligned to the bottom right. I love how you made it small and subtle but it would be even better if at the end of a comment there wasn't something else to read - even though I immediately recognize these kinds of small sentences (like the Partiko app) I do notice my brain still wants to 'read' the letters which can be very anti-climactic after reading a great comment. Putting the comment on the right means people still can see where the comment was posted from while keeping comments at the same time look as clean as possible :D

As said, minor minor things, because I'm already forgetting how I kept up with my comments before this app :')

Done in the last update of SteemReply ;)

YESSS! Thank you :D

This reply convinced me of trying! FYI

Hello @arcange,

thank you making the Fast Reply Idea alive again.

Indeed, we published it one year ago and haven't been very active on the steem blockchain as you know, since we met last November at Steemfest in Krakow, family, baby and other stuff for @oroger and me :-)

But please, let me tell you how confuse I am with this tool you published... We know each other in real life, I was hoping that you would at least let us know first.

We did Fast-Reply as an open source tool so that it could be maintained/forked by anyone. I was just surprised that you never talked about it to us...

Upvoted for visibility.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Hello @roxane,

First let me congratulate you and @oroger for your new baby! I hope that everything went smooth during the birth.

Yep, I didn't contact you as your last social interaction with the blockchain took place more than 3 months ago, more than a year for @oroger. My last message to you has remained unanswered. Fully understandable as we now know a bit more about the recent events in you life, but your last post was all but clear about you staying or leaving.

Yes, as the licence for the project was MIT, I decided to fork it, mentioned the credits and revived it.

We are never better served than by ourselves, aren't we?

You're confused? I am too, when I see a 100% self-upvote "for visibility" and none on the post ... or when I wonder what's your real intent behind putting so much visibility on your comment.

Hey @roxane, nice to read you again: I really missed you! 😁

SteemReply sounds like it'll be a useful tool. I am happy to see the Steem Keychain integration as I think it's super important that we stop needing to potentially give away our login credentials to service providers to use the Steem blockchain.

When I log in, I see:

Hopefully, someone replies to this comment so I can try out SteemReply. To help new users immediately use the utility, it would be nice to populate the inbox with the last 7 days of activity upon first login. If it already does this, my apologies... not sure when my last activity was.

Hello @dhimmel, thank you for your feedback.
Here is the comment reply you requested 😆

About how the inbox is populated, it's written in the post:

SteemReply will look for and display any unanswered comments you have received on your posts or on your own comments in the last 7 days.

Another couple suggestions:

  1. Would it be possible to have a tab for already-replied-to? This would be useful for adding additional comments to threads I've already commented on. Also for navigation. For example, I had trouble getting back to this post after I replied to it.

  2. I don't love having the "Posted with PNG" sentence appended to my comment although it is quite minimal. Would there be a way that donating over a certain amount could enable an option to disable the SteemReply signature?

  3. Could there be a self upvote option for one's own comments made through SteemReply?

Thank you for your suggestions @dhimmel
I have added them in my todo list.
I'm not sure if/when implement they, but will provide more info about this on next update.

Ah cool. Sorry I missed that detail. Nice engineering decision.

This is awesome! Just last week I mentioned to someone how much I missed Fast-Reply. I just took Steemreply for a quick test drive, and I love it!
The feature that you can check multiple accounts from within one dashboard is just awesome. Thanks a lot for this, @arcange!

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

Thank you @simplymike.
I really needed the "multiple account" and "cross-device sync" features. I was also very reluctant to use SteemConnect hence the reasons I forked it.
Posted with

I'm using it to go through my comments right now. What a luxury... Love the built-in emoticons too! It seems I indeed missed quite a lot, lol - but that's not really a surprise...

(Meanwhile, I can make 'real-time' replies like this one when I get a notification through Steem Enhancer)

Thanks so very much @arcange and also to @simplymike for sharing the news about SteemReply.

I'm producing new artwork at the moment and constantly find myself in the dilemma of wanting to genuinely respond to people, but knowing if I'm to fulfill my goals I'll need to find a much smarter way of answering comments. I'll definitely look at setting up SteemReply over the weekend now. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

With SteemReply, replying will take less than half the time it normally does, in my experience. So time for art ánd engagement 😉

Thanks so much @simplymike. Will be wonderful to free up more time for actually making 'things.' ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎


Thanks so very much @arcange. The timing couldn't be more perfect for me. I'll definitely look at setting up SteemReply over the weekend now. So happy to gave seen @simplymike's review of SteemReply. Resteemed and voted for you as a witness. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Thank you for your positive comment @allyinspirit
I'm glad you found this post and I hope you will enjoy SteemReply.
And thank you for your support and witness vote, really appreciated!

A pleasure @arcange.

I registered with Steem Reply but I've been receiving the same messages as @felipejoys ~ But then maybe it's because I used Steem Connect? I refreshed and logged out but to no avail.

So I tried to start again, after registering with Steem Keychain, but Steem Keychain is not accepting my password. This non-techie will be so grateful for any help @arcange. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Please, contact me on the Discord server I created for SteemReply:

Thanks @arcange. Will do and chat later today. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Thanks a lot for this great tool! It is really very helpful and keeps track of comments to be answered. WOW, I am amazed! Resteemed! :-)

Thank you for the resteem @actifit-peter

You are very welcome!🙏🙂

Wow @arcange sounds like a great tool to use! Will check this out later (out of energy at the moment). For now I have resteemed this post where I think a lot of people can use this👍

Thank you for your resteem @guchtere, really appreciated!
I hope you will get back your energy and enjoy give it a try.

First try with your app, really looking great, and I think it will be a energy saver for me! 😀😀😀❤️

Thank you @guchtere. Glad to read your first try was positive.

Can I still reply here @arcange?

Got an error tonight while trying to reply at comments, you have any idea what could be wrong?

I created a Discord server for support.
Better to move this conversation there.

Discord link is expired... But I noticed a whole new interface. So Gonna try that first.

Here a new (non-expiring) link:

Added the Discord group! Seems to me that with the new version the error is gone? Just posted an comment and no error at all.👍

Cool, glad to read everything is working smooth now.
Thank you for the feedback @guchtere

No thanks at all @arcange, love your tool for quick replying.❤️👍

Thanks so much 🤗 for the great come back, @arcange!

Is there any way to login from a mobile device? (Maybe I missed some keychain's development for mobile?)

Resteemed with much joy! 😍

Cheers! 🥂

Thank you @amico.

Is there any way to login from a mobile device?

Unfortunately no because mainstream mobile browsers do not allow to install extension like Keychain.
I might consider re implementing Steem Connect authentication, even if I find it "less secure"

I think the choice of login method to use can be done consciously by each user. 😉

In steemreply could you add the ability to chose our preferred Steem condenser? (i.e.,,

Ohh, thanks: you’re always very kind!

Please notice that @partiko have a different URL sintax (i.e. the username without “@“)

Cheers 🥂

Thanks for the tip about Partiko

Maybe it works even with the standard URL... just check it. 😜

Lies :P

Well, you did say 'Mainstream mobile' so I guess you are correct except Kiwi Browser is a mobile browser that is basically a Chrome clone and has support for Chrome extensions.

I've tested KeyChain and it works as expected in Kiwi mobile browser :)

wow ... just bring extraordinary value to Steem, always arcange

Muchas Gracias @rutablockchain.
Espero que sea útil administrar sus contactos con los miembros de su comunidad.

The tool looks great and your post explains it very detailed. I don't get so many comments/replies, but I imagine for some this is almost a life saver. Certainly a time saver!

I wanted to reply via steemreply but your reply doesn't show there yet even after I refresh. Maybe I'm just too anxious, lol!

lol ... the hidden feature of SteemReply -> makes you less anxious 😂

Yup, that can be a great alternative when people don't want to be disturbed by notifications all the time. :)

This is awesome arcange 🙂

Once again the friendliest coding Wiz on the Blockchain brings us am amazing interface to make life easier 👍

I'll definitely be using this in conjunction with brave browser.

Thank you @raj808. So many compliments in one sentence. Makes me blush 😊

So great! I hope you don't mind, but I shared this with our community of hunters on @Steemhunt <3 (with credit of course)

I kept checking back to fastreply in the hopes that it would come back but after hf20 there were no updates. Super thankful to have a similar service (and mutiple account sign ins! woot!)

Thank you for the share @dayleeo 👍

Happy to spread the word, used it for most of the day yesterday and really loved it :D !

It is a good tool.Do u add the function which can manage several accounts' steem?

Multiple account management has already been implemented.
Posted with

Amazing. Sounds very useful.

Posted using Partiko Android

I am very interested in this @arcange but doesn't Steem Keychain also ask for our creditenials?

Of course Keychain will ask for your credentials, but:

  1. the extension code runs locally on your browser. It does not rely on an internet connection or a 3rd party service.
  2. the provided keys are encrypted and stored locally. They never leave your computer. They are used locally to sign transactions.
  3. keychain code is auditable, either on github and even locally after you have installed the extension. It's clear text Javascript.

It's a like a password manager, except that not all password manager code are auditable.

Ah.. thank you @arcange I never knew that difference.

Is it possible to make a mobile version of Key chain?

I would love to use it but most of my activity is via Mobile Devices.

Is it possible to make a mobile version of Key chain?

I would like to, but the main problem is that mainstream browsers on mobile devices do not allow to install extensions like Keychain 😢

This is samething I need to check.

Posted using Partiko Android

At the moment I go through my my replies to see if there's anything I haven't responded to and so far its still manageable as I don't have tons of engagement, but I can see how handy this would be when someone has lot of comments to deal with. Great stuff!!!

Thank you @livinguktaiwan.
I shouldn't wish you to be overwhelmed by comments from your followers to see you start using SteemReply... but yes, that's what I wish you. 😂

Yes do , the present is highly appreciated.

Steemreply does no longer work with me since 4 weeks. I am a mobile user only. What can be the reason? It keeps loading, no matter how slow or fast the connection is.

Posted using Partiko Android

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

I think it is solved. Clearing data did not help but it suddenly refused to work with the Samsung browser. Chrome is too heavy to load with a slow connection so I will not be able to use it often. I cannot reach Discord either, not see videos and frequently not see photos or load posts.

  ·  2 years ago (edited)

@arcange I tried Brave several times on but it is extremely slow so I deleted it. I use the Samsung browser it is way faster but even.that one can not load at times.

I now only start chrome to use steemreply and do nothing else with it. It is slow indeed but if it works for this I am happy. Partiko cannot be trusted and I clearly miss way more comments as thought.

Thank you for your responf. I wish you a great day. 👍❤️

Trying to sign in but keep getting this error. My Steem keychain is unlocked and working with keys loaded. Any ideas?

You have stm: bewteen the @ and your name.
In SteemReply, check you typed your name without the @.

I go to and in the login I type flemingfarm and that is what I get every time. No @, no stm:, just flemingfarm.

Fantastic! What an awesome application!

This is awesome @arcange! Is this open source?

It'd be great if there is a function to search communication with a user, e.g., all conversations, filtered by search keyword.

Thank you @blockchainstudio
It was initially open source. No more in its actual version because I had to secure communication between the front-end (running on client browser) and the back-end.
Thanks for the "search" suggestions. I will add them to my todo.
